On June 20 in Winnfield, Louisiana, rapper Lil Snupe, a recent arrival to Meek Mill’s Dream Chasers record label, was shot and died. According to C.B.S. station K.N.O.E. 8, police say 18-year-old Addarren Ross had been slain at the Maplewood Apartments in Winnfield at approximately 4 a.m. Lil Snupe, also known as Ross, had been shot twice.
No more information has been provided, despite the identification of a suspect. Lil Snupe, a rapper from Louisiana and Dream Chasers associate, was assassinated on June 20, 2013, because of a dispute. Snupe, born Addarren Ross, had a promising career even as a young child.
In April 2013, Snupe got picked up to Meek Mill’s Dreams Chasers record label at 17 after Meek overheard one of the young rapper’s demos. The Louisiana spitter released the R.N.I.C. mixtape during the brief time of his career, and he also collaborated with DJ Mustard, Meek Mill, and Boosie Badazz.
Lil’ Snupe’s murder has a suspect and a reason for it.
According to authorities, Addarren Ross was shot and killed over a computer game, and a defendant has been named in the case. In addition, Lil’ Snupe, an 18-year-old rapper, was murdered, and Winnfield police obtained a warrant to place 36-year-old Tony Holden under arrest.
Ross passed away early on Thursday morning in a Winnfield apartment. Two shots to the chest had been fired at him. According to police, a video game-related quarrel at a friend’s flat that erupted into gunfire is what caused the shooting.
However, further research has led Lt. Charles Curry, a criminal investigator with the Winnfield Police Department, to conclude that the man was engaged in a confrontation caused by genuine video game wagering.
To learn more about his location, Lt. Curry stated, “we are pursuing every lead that has been provided.” Even today, the police are requesting information from members of the general public by urging them to phone. Holden is sought for first-degree murder as well as armed robbery and unlawful firearm possession by a felon, according to further warrants.
Rapper’s murder suspect in Louisiana gets detained
The police have stated that the man accused of killing the Louisiana rapper Lil Snupe handed himself in and was lodged in the local jail. According to a press statement from the Winnfield Police Department, Tony Holden, 36, was arrested yesterday on suspicion of first-degree murder, armed robbery, and unlawful possession of a handgun by a convicted felon and was taken to the Winnfield municipal prison.
According to the press statement, investigators are still looking into the situation. Lt. Charles Curry, the Winnfield Police Department’s public information officer, informed A.B.C. News that Holden has a criminal history and is a felon. However, he claimed that a bond had yet to be established. Lil Snupe, 18, reportedly stabbed and died on June 20, according to an Associated Press investigation.
According to the A.P., Lil Snupe was struck in the chest twice following an altercation that started during a video game at a friend’s residence. According to the A.P., the police were looking for an “unidentified person of interest” after he was slain. Curry attested to Holden’s identity as the subject of the investigation.
Regarding Holden’s motivations, he would not comment. According to Curry, the 8th Judicial District of the Louisiana Public Defender Board has been assigned to handle all accusations. However, according to a board member, it has yet to be chosen to symbolize Holden.
Suspect in the death of Lil Snupe Surrenders
The 18-year-old rapper nicknamed Lil Snupe was killed, according to police in north Louisiana, and a 36-year-old man is now in custody on murder charges. Tony Holden handed himself in on Tuesday, June 26, according to a news release from Winnfield Police Commissioner Johnny Ray Carpenter. First-degree murder, armed robbery, and unlawful possession of a handgun by a convicted felon are the allegations that led to his booking into the local jail.
There is no established relationship. If Holden had a lawyer, that information wasn’t immediately available. However, according to the police, an altercation that started during a game at a friend’s residence last Thursday led to Holden shooting the rapper, whose actual name is Addarren Ross. Jonesboro resident Ross had received two gunshot wounds.
